For many dental patients, achieving straight teeth is a top priority. However, the thought of having to wear traditional metal braces can be a major deterrent. Fortunately, at tooth+ we are excited to offer you a solution that offers a more discreet alternative: Invisalign clear aligners.
Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth. They are made of a smooth, clear plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn, making them an ideal choice for those who don’t want the look of traditional braces.
One of the main benefits of Invisalign clear aligners is that they are removable. This means that patients can take them out when eating or brushing their teeth, making it much easier to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the treatment process. In addition, because there are no wires or brackets to deal with, there is less risk of irritation or discomfort to the mouth.
Another benefit of Invisalign is that it typically requires fewer office visits than traditional braces. Patients simply receive a new set of aligners every few weeks and can switch them out at home. This can be a major time saver for those with busy schedules.
In terms of effectiveness, Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces for most cases of mild to moderate malocclusion. However, it’s important to note that more severe cases may require traditional braces or other orthodontic treatment options.
Overall, Invisalign clear aligners offer a discreet, comfortable, and effective way to straighten teeth for our patients who are concerned about the look and feel of traditional braces.
